Crooked and Drooping Tip, Teenage Rhinoplasty, Patient 28700
After undergoing plastic surgery to repair a cleft lip and palate, this 16-year-old girl needed nasal surgery to help with her difficulty breathing. Experienced in teenage rhinoplasty, Albany facial plastic surgeon Edwin Williams, MD, led a lengthy consultation to explore the limitations imposed by her nasal structure. Ultimately, he performed nasal reconstruction and rhinoplasty to create a nose that is better aligned and harmonizes with the rest of ther face when seen from the front, at an angle, and in profile. She can also breathe more easily now, and is extremely pleased with the results.
